On the Street….Anna Wintour, New York

I think this is the first shot I have ever done of Ms. Wintour without her giant bodyguards framing the shot.

    She looks quite vulnerable in comparison to the urban landscape. Beautiful juxtaposition, very inspiring.

    Seeing her without her customary entourage is unusual for sure. Looks like she's either thinking about the show she just left or the one she's going to

    What struck me most about _The September Issue_ was how deeply unhappy Ms. Wintour seems to be (her comments about her father and siblings were heart-wrenching). That's what I see in this photo. You've created a beautiful and thought-provoking portrait, Mr. S.

    Like on many other her photos that I have seen, she looks rather unhappy, if not discontent. And this is while being the first figure in the world that so many aspire to be admitted – glamour, luxury, fame… Ahhh… it is so sad!to see such an accomplished person be so sad.

    The tie-dyish skirt is quite beautiful, but, dare I say it, is this ensemble, particularly the arbitraryness of the necklace, a style that we would ever hope to see replicated?

    Compared to most of the people you feature, it is impossible to say she is well dressed. Such a mismatch of styles – 80s skirt, "Italian" shirt and boots, and almost goth-like jacket. Urgghh

    I don't think Anna looks sad. It seems that she's simply a thoughtful introvert in an industry full of shallow extroverts. It looks to me as if she's simply moving on to her next thing, but yet still wrapped up in the show she had just seen. I admire how she can be so contemplative and disciplined amidst the chaos of fashion week.

    Regarding her outfit: I like how her combination of clothes is a bit edgier than what we usually see her in. LOVE the coat. Anyone know who it's by?

  76. Fashion Monstre

    February 13, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    it's cute how you mention there're body guards when you really captured the thought of her just walking alone on such a street where i'm sure she stands out and everyone recognizes her

    February 13, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    what do people think of her belt? I have thing with belting things unnecessarily but I also see women doing it even on tight clothing. I like it on flowy dresses that need a waist however.

  78. Alilica

    February 13, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    I truly don't understand whether people admire her for what she represents or for who she is. For me, she has no personality and is sad. People misunderstood "The September Issue". This documentary just shows how unhappy she is.

      Come on, she is not always walking with guards. Durring Milan Fashion Week, u can see her always arriving and leaving venue alone. Sometimes guards help her get faster to the car waitng behind the corner but seriously never seen her surrounded by guards.

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks a little frumpy in that sweater? I like the skirt though, it is wonderful. Hard to pair a wide skirt with a narrow top. I guess that's why the belt. Nothing here obviously matches yet it goes together effortlessly, which is what style is all about.

    No doubt that she has much on her mind.

    She does appear pretty nicely dressed.

      If you walked past Henry Kissinger, or CoCo Chanel, or JFK if you knew nothing, you would not know you were walking past an icon. (of course I mean if you were walking past them when they were alive…to see dead people walking would certainly be an attention grabber) Whats your point? Peoples life story isn’t written on their forehead.

    The following time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to learn, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair if you werent too busy searching for attention.

    She really is inspiring to know that you can look incredible and stylish at any age. She does.

    Che fotografia impietosa! coglie quella che è considerata l’icona della moda in una posa solitaria, trieste, pensierosa. Per non parlar del fatto che mette ben in evidenza gli anni passati sul suo volto rugoso e cadente
